This equation arises in the study of interface fluctuations in spin systems and in quantum semiconductor modeling. The problem is considered on a bounded interval subject to initial and Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions. Further, the initial datum is only assumed to be non-negative and to satisfy a weak integrability condition. The main difficulty of the existence proof is to ensure that the solutions stay non-negative and exist globally in time. The first property is obtained by an exponential transformation of variables. Moreover, entropy-type estimates allow for the proof of the second property. Results concerning the uniqueness and long-time behaviour are given and the multi-dimensional problem is discussed. Finally, numerical experiments underlining the preservation of positivity are presented.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Jüngel, Ansgar</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T16:10:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Pinnau, René</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Global Non-Negative Solutions of a Nonlinear Fourth-Order Parabolic Equation for Quantum Systems</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T16:10:13Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/6208/1/preprint_098.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>1999</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/6208/1/preprint_098.pdf"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/6208"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
